Persistent bad breath generally means there is an underlying medical problem and you should look further for the cause. It could be a simple case of poor mouth care where tartar has built up on the teeth. Maybe it has even progressed to gum disease. In this case a trip to your vet and a good cleaning along with better oral care should solve the problem.
